No jobs now, or on the horizon. We need to rebuild the jobs infrastructure, government spending is just a stop-gap measure.

Where is the 5 million new jobs he promised?

Now we have set a record for people who are receiving welfare food stamps.

All thanks to the Obama administration.

This is good news for Democrats since they love welfare. They are getting just what they want, more dependents

Default Total unemployment rate DROPS: This is huge.

Well, I've been saying for a while that job losses are easing and just earlier in the week I made reference to the fact that the numbers expected out today would likely show new jobs losses of about 350,000 or so (about HALF of what job losses were in January).

Well I was wrong. New jobs losses have come in at under 250,000 - and the TOTAL unemployment rate DROPPED - something not expected to happen until sometime NEXT YEAR.
This is HUGE news.
Expect a massive gain on Wall Street today.

"WASHINGTON -- Employers throttled back on layoffs in July, cutting just 247,000 jobs, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate dipped to 9.4 percent, its first decline in 15 months.

It was a better-than-expected showing that offered a strong signal that the recession is finally ending.
"
